Prayers of the Faithful for August 5 & 6, 2017
Glimpsing the glory of God, we humbly present our petitions.
That all those in leadership positions in the church may be the visible presence of the transfigured Jesus, we pray:
That the community of the baptized transform the world through their radiant faith, we pray:
That lands ravaged by war, especially in Iraq and the Middle East, be transfigured by lasting peace, we pray:
That those who are discouraged, hesitant to journey forward in life, or lost on the way may be strengthened by those who shine with the glory of the risen Jesus, we pray:
That all who gather at this table find the Lord’s glory in word, in Eucharist, and in one another, we pray:
That those who are ill and have asked for our prayers including, Poli Hernandez, find comfort in the healing touch of God and by the loving care of family and friends, we pray:
That all who have died be waken to new life and those who grieve be comforted, we pray:
All-powerful God, you work wonders in the world. Look into our hearts and give us what we need. We ask this in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
